My brother and I

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Crystal Schildt November 19, 2012 Pd.1 My Brother and I ?My Brother, My Friend I love my brother, my brother loves me. My friend, my hero, he always will be. In sundry ways our uniqueness is clear. Sometimes we fight and scream at each other, but he is my friend for he is my brother.? Most siblings are very similar, but my brother and I are uniquely different. Whenever someone meets us both, they are in dismay to learn that we are siblings.

In conclusion, I cannot imagine having a brother who is less like me than he is. We have almost nothing in common and only see each other on birthdays and holidays.
